If you want my opinion: Speed.

Blurred reflections work best when the render engine includes a good
framework for unbiased stochastic rendering, so that all oversampling
stuff -- blurred reflections, area lights, media, focal blur and
what-have-you-not -- don't cause the render time to explode exponentially.

POV-Ray does not have any such framework. UberPOV does, but it is still
rudimentary and probably needs lots more work.
